for example: wild strawberries, la strada, la dolce vita... and by the way it is a matter of taste. :)

I'm really tired of hearing about how Citizen Kane is the greatest movie of all-time....I respect that opinion but it has just aged so much. Indeed, had I been alive in 1941, I would have understood how influential it was. But I can't, and in my opinion, The Godfather reigns as the best I've seen.

The Godfather, Pulp Fiction and City Of God are the best

No they do not. Always nice to see two of the best unscarred by those renegade critics who feast off blemishing a perfect score.

This is an age of criticism where people think simply having a minority opinion is enough to give them more credence than anyone else, like such an opinion matters more or is entitled to more respect because it's contrarian. This is where we get these ridiculous notions like 'overrated' from.
